When it comes to burn injuries, there are various types and differing levels of severity. No matter the cause of a burn, they are categorized as first, second, third, of fourth degree burn. The severity is determined based on how many layers of skin and tissue are burned.
Less serious burns occur while performing daily activities and can transpire from hot water, curling irons, stoves, etc. Less severe burns can simply be treated through home remedies. More severe burns may injure the skin and damage other parts of the body such as muscles, blood vessels, nerves, lungs, and eyes. Severe burns require immediate medical treatment.
